I would say that this--

Finally, they make the final leap of Darwinian faith to the present despite not having ANY significant change in insects morphology since the Triassic to indicate "evolution" is in progress,
"a process that continues to this day, result in insects filling all available environmental niches."     

Let's correct that last bit of wishful thinking to reflect the facts on the ground: It appears  that  the rapid simultaneous appearance of new species depending for their existence on multiple symbiotic mechanisms cannot be explained by natural selection, indicating a (still unexplained) process occurred in the Triassic period that resulted in insects filling all available environmental niches of the present biosphere.

Is the moral equivalent of resolving a cpmplex narrative by writing, "...and then they all got hit by a truck." Takes care of your complex plot issues, but ultimately unsatisfying.

So there are holes in evolutionary theory. So what?

IMO, there really important issues that face us in preserving God's creation have to do with embracing alternative fuels and putting the fossil fuelers out of business, a business that will long outlive either of us.
